Edit Movie Grayed Out

Question

I just bought this software last night and i used VHS to DVD 3!plus to get my vhs to computer files. So i bought this to edit and add music to my videos. I add movie just fine, but all the editing stuff is greyed out. I dont see the storyline and i cant trim it or anything. I can just add a menu and burn. Help... Ive spent for two roxio products now and still cannot do,what i want. Thanks fir any information.. Im on a new HP ALL IN ONE running windows 8.1.

Welcome to the forums !

 

Have you looked ta/studied the Users Guide? It is here (link).

 

Let us know if that solves your problem. If not:

 

1) Did you plug in the capture device BEFORE installing the program?

2) Did you install the program with your antivirus active?

3) Did you install to other than an administrator account or to an emulation mode?

 

If any of the above 3 items are true, you may have a bad install. and the program will need to be repaired.. Let us know if you need directions.

 

Have you ever hear of the old saying "Penny Wise and pound foolish"? Are you trying to buy cheap?

That is correct, the Editing features of MyDVD have been disable in the Red Box version :(

 

To do what you want, you really need the full version, NXT2.

 

Depending on where you bought your Red Box version, you might be able to talk them into letting you return it and upgrade to NXT2 ;)

Oh boy. Well I have to express that I am a little disappointed. I bought the vhs to dvd 3 plus to get my videos into the computer but when burned on a dvd my player won't play it. The technical people with my one help request told me to save my videos as computer files and then start a new project and bring them in. (Clearly a lot of steps.). So, I bought The red box easy cd and dvd burn which I purchased and downloaded from the Roxio website because it clearly states you can edit and add music. Roxio sent me an email offering for me to purchase the burn software so I thought it would provide editing, etc. Neither software allows me to voice over on movies without sound. And only the vhs to dvd allows editing. Wow.... I am a retired associate director of information systems.... I never saw anything with so little support and lack of clearly statements about what their various software can and cannot do. Disappointing. I feel like they just want me to keep buying more and more till I get all the pieces........

Easy CD and DVD Burning [the 'red box'] won't do what you want, because it is a cut-down version of the main Creator, and so many of the software's capabilities have been deliberately removed. There is little, if any, indication at the point of sale of the functions and abilities which have been removed. :(

Return it for refund as fast as you can.

I have seen far worse support for products costing thousands :lol::D:lol: (which in no way excuses Roxio!)

 

While Roxio support is lacking, you will find your fellow users here willing to go out of their way to assist you!

 

Your problems with EVD3 should not be happening but while we can resolve them, EVD3 lacks any way to add music to an existing project... Disc issues with EVD3 are usually the fault of Project Quality or cheap media.
